Dinner At The Art Museum


The St. Louis Art Museum has an excellent restaurant, Panorama, named, I suppose, for its sweeping view of the statue of Louis IX and Art Hill. The restaurant got terrible reviews when it first opened. The current executive chef, Ivy Magruder, has engineered a complete turn around.

We had not heard about this until a couple of days ago. The museum hardly publicizes it but one Friday a month, Panorama runs a multi-course, prix fixe tasting menu they call Art At The Table. Mrs. C hapened to find out about it and we attended last night's meal. It has a seafood theme. Very, very good. We booked for June on the spot.

That's Chef Magruder in the second picture. Bottom, the entrance to the George Caleb Bingham exhibit. It closes tomorrow. We're going this afternoon.

Yes food in musea can be good or not but in my experience in europe its mostly fine and that also for a very decent prize.

Sounds like the chef has turned the food around. Reminds of that Yogism, "People don't go there anymore. It's too crowded."

I'm quite familiar with that image in the entrance to the exhibit.

That last snap is an interesting one.
